Area Attractions

 

Glacier National Park

 

The coveted area nicknamed the “Crown of the Continent” for obvious reasons offers exclusive views and activities in the state of Montana. With over 700 miles of trails through pristine forests, alpine meadows sprinkled with bright lovely wildflowers, rugged and tenacious mountains, and spectacular sparkling lakes. Visit the historic chalets and lodges for a walk back in time or backpack, cycle, hike, or camp. While taking in the astounding sights of the glacier-carved peaks and valleys, set your binoculars on a diverse range of wildlife of bighorn sheep, mountain goats, deer, elk, ptarmigan, and both black and grizzly bears. This highway to heaven is a tough one to ever forget.

 

Two Medicine Area

 

The Two Medicine Area is a vast mountainous world within Glacier National Park. The area is located just two miles north of East Glacier, Montana. The scenery is remarkable and there are endless hiking opportunities at the hub of Two Medicine Lake. Take a boat tour or rent one of your own!

 

Rocky Mountain Front

 

This portion of Montana has a greater diversity of fish and wildlife than any other state in the US. With protection from the altering contours of the land and ample food from the surrounding farm fields, wildlife and birds alike flourish making this area a coveted destination during the hunting and fishing seasons. The area provides year-long habitat for mule and white-tailed deer, elk, mountain goats, bighorn sheep, and antelope. In addition, other furbearers such as beaver, mink, muskrat, otter, weasel, badger, coyote, lynx, bobcat, and mountain lion can all be found within a 100-mile radius. White-tail and mule deer maintain a healthy population here as it is a wintering destination for the species. Mule deer are often open-country deer offering those with farm ground or acres such as these a treasure trove of delicious tasting, large, beautiful bucks. Mule deer are not as shy as whitetails and are content with little cover or sparse brush. They have distinctive large ears that stick out like a big V against a hillside. However, these big bucks, ones with a 30-inch inside antler spread, are quite exciting to track and make for an enriching experience. They prefer rugged areas such as badlands and breaks. Glorious long walks through fields and up and down draws can reward you with a big mule deer buck. The drainages and foothills provide cover, coulees, and water for superb mule and white-tailed deer hunting. The area offers some of the most prime bow hunting for white-tailed hunting in the entire state. The open country can also provide the added challenge of bagging the swift antelope. These speed goats are all over the countryside, so the challenge is waiting for your acceptance. There are also plenty of pheasants, Hungarian Partridge, Rough Grouse, Blue Grouse, and Spruce Grouse. Bird watchers can revel in seeing Calliopes, Rufus Hummingbirds, Bluebirds, Cassin Finch, Red Crossbill, Ferrungus Hawks, Pine Grosbeaks, and Western Tanager.

 

Bob Marshall Wilderness Complex

 

Comprised of three wildernesses, the Bob Marshall, the Scapegoat, and the Great Bear, the complex covers over 1.5 million acres of mountainous terrain considered to be one of the most completely preserved ecosystems in the world!
